The Blue Angel Weekly
May 30, 2023
Dear PCA Families,
I hope everyone had a great long weekend! It is hard to believe that this is the last week of the 2022-2023 school year. I want to take this opportunity to thank all our families for their support of PCA this year. We are so blessed to have such wonderful families! We would love to have your input for next school year.
Please take a moment to complete this end-of-year school input survey:
Wednesday is our 8th grade breakfast, service day, and carpool parade. Thank you for your patience as the decorated cars make their way through our afternoon carline to celebrate the graduates.
8th grade graduation practice is on Thursday at 9:30 AM at the church. Students should meet in the Cultural Center.
Thursday is our Pre-K Graduation at 1:00 PM in the PCA gym.
8th grade Graduation Mass is Thursday evening at 5:00 PM at OLSS church.
Friday is Field Day for grades Pre-K-5 and the last day of school! Students can wear their field day shirts (coming soon) with school-appropriate shorts or pants. 6th graders can dress down in red and white and seventh graders can dress down in blue. We will have early release (PreK @Noon, K-2 @ 12:40, 3-5 @ 12:50, 6-8 @ 1:00) and no Angels After Hours.
Summer hours are 8:00 AM - 3:00 PM.
I will send some email updates throughout the summer, but not weekly. Please be sure to check your emails for any important updates!
I hope everyone has a fun, happy, and safe summer!
*HSA SURVEY - service hour opportunity!*
IF YOU COMPLETE THE SURVEY BY THE END OF THE DAY, Wednesday, May 31, YOU WILL RECEIVE ONE SERVICE HOUR.
Thank you for your input!
